The monthly transmission charge is Rs. 80.29 Crore.

For drawal of power in excess of the contracted capacity of open access, the tariff for availing standby support from the grid shall be two times of the per unit weighted average tariff of HV consumers, which is Rs. 14.75 per kWh (2 times of the average billing rate of Rs. 7.38 per kWh).

2.Intra-State Open Access Charges for renewable energy transactions

a) Transmission Charges in cash for long-term/medium-term/short-term open access - NIL

b) Wheeling Charges in cash for long-term/medium-term/short-term open access - NIL

c) SLDC Charges (Operating Charges) for long-term/medium-term/short-term open access - NIL

d) Total Transmission Charges or Wheeling Charges or Combination thereof in kind (energy losses) for long-term/medium-term/short-term open access - 6%

e) Cross-Subsidy Surcharge - i. A consumer availing open access is required to pay the cross-subsidy

i. A consumer availing open access is required to pay the cross-subsidy surcharge.

ii. In case a generating company is an open access customer and is supplying power to a consumer of the State, the liability of paying cross-subsidy surcharge shall be on the consumer. If a captive generating plant avails open access for supplying power to its captive users, and if the captive users do not fulfil the requirement of captive users in a financial year as prescribed in the

iii. The Cross Subsidy Surcharge payable is 50% of the Cross Subsidy Surcharge determined for that year, which is as under:

a) For 220 kV/132 kV consumers Rs. 0.69 per kWh (which is 50% of the computed value of Rs. 1.37 per kWh).

b) For 33 kV consumers Rs. 0.83 per kWh (which is 50% of the computed value of Rs. 1.65 per kWh).

iv. In case of a consumer receiving power from biomass based power generating plants through open access, if it is established that the biomass based power generating plants supplying power to such consumer has used biomass in the lesser ratio than as mentioned in the guidelines of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy during any financial year, then the relaxations at (iii) above given to the open access consumer shall be treated as withdrawn for that financial year and the biomass generator shall be liable to pay to CSPDCL full Cross Subsidy Surcharge.
